I suck.

Tonight, I got an earful from Middleman.

And, unfortunately, he made TOTAL sense.

He was upset that Threepeat knocked down the mega-blocks tower that he had made before I saw it and, considering that I think he was already overtired, the knocking over of the tower was the straw that broke the camel's back.

The tears flowed freely as he cried and yelled about how Threepeat ALWAYS breaks his things and that Hubster and I give him ALL the attention and that we NEVER spend any time with him individually. He cried that we used to have family game night on Fridays until Threepeat was born and now, we never do that anymore.

My heart broke.

I hugged him and promised that things would change. I apologized and begged for forgiveness. It was all I could do not to cry right along with him. As much as Hubster and I have tried to give the older boys attention, clearly it has not been enough. And he is right.


Sometimes I just want to clone myself. Pin It

Having multiple kids is tough and trying to balance the amount of time with each of them is never easy. Please don't beat yourself up over this.

As much as that whole conversation must have sucked, you can be happy that Nicholas talked to you about it.

He is able to express his feelings, even in a tough situation. That is something good to take a way from this.

I can only echo what Wendy said, and so very wisely!
You are a good mom!

{{{Hugs}}} I'm glad he could tell you what was on his mind. That makes you at terrific mom! Keep those lines of communication open. Mommys aren't perfect - but we can learn from our mistakes. Don't be too hard on yourself.
